Description

This roundtable, co-sponsored by the John Gower Society and the Consortium for the Teaching of the Middle Ages (TEAMS), seeks short presentations (5-6 minutes) which focus on practical pedagogical issues and strategies involved in teaching John Gower’s works in classes of all levels (from k-12 to graduate). The panel is particularly interested in practical approaches and welcomes lesson plans, assignment descriptions, examples of student projects, and teaching resources. TEAMS Middle English Text Series (METS) publishes and hosts online Gower’s works (in ME and in translation of the shorter Anglo-French and Latin texts), and it is an apt time for such a panel given that more selections of Gower’s works are appearing in anthologies (in both Modern and Middle English), and the MLA recently published its MLA Approaches to Teaching the Poetry of John Gower. This panel seeks to provide a venue for sharing approaches to, and materials for, teaching Gower in a variety of classroom settings using these newly established and emerging print and online resources.
